Encountered the magnificent Caher whilst doing the Coomloughra horseshoe ascent to Carrauntoohil. The wind was a bit high so the group decided not to do the Beenkeragh ridge but instead we descended by the scree slope into Coomloughra glen. Would not recommend this descent as we ran into steep ground and had to negotiate a couple of crags. The peak to the left is Caher with its West top to the right as seen from the ridge across to Carrauntohil. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/2593/
